The 6 Do’s and Don’ts of Hiring Outsourced Accounting Services

by | Feb 23, 2022 | Accounting, Bookkeeping

Owning and operating a business takes more than showing up, doing the work, and serving clients or customers. 

As a business owner or company executive, you’re more involved in the operations and future success of the business itself. 

The more time you spend inside your business, the less time you spend on growing and investing in its future financial success. 

This is why it’s so important to hire an Outsourced Accounting Department so you can spend more time ON your business instead of IN it!

Let me manage your company’s financialS.

Get spot-on financial reports weekly, monthly, quarterly, or whenever you like.

Outsource your Accounting Department to me for a third of the cost!

The 3 Do’s of Hiring Outsourced Accounting Services

You want to outsource your accounting department. I can help you with that for a third of the cost. Also, here are the 3 things you should do when looking for an outsourced accounting solution: 

#1. DO get a quote from prospective accounting departments

You want to compare costs, time, energy, and management of financial standings across all potential outsourced accounting departments. If you don’t do this, you may miss out on an expert professional like me in your outsourcing endeavors. 

#2. DO ask for competencies and qualifications

Your outsourced accounting department MUST be able to manage your financial standings and reports accurately and effectively! If you do not ask for competencies before hiring an outsourced accounting department, you’re asking for chaos and disaster over the next few months to a year. Get this information from your accounting professional prospects and speak with them about specific problems, reports, forecasting, etc, you would like managed. 

#3. DO check their versatility and certification in your chosen accounting software

You should outsource accounting responsibilities to a professional or team that’s an expert in the accounting software you use or plan to use. Without adept knowledge in accounting software, your accounting and financials will be the worst for it. Every industry holds nuances to how it operates, but that nuance can be managed through accounting software. Industry knowledge plus accounting software expertise is important.

The 3 Don’ts of Hiring Outsourced Accounting Services

If you’re going to outsource your accounting department, and I would recommend you do just that, here are the 3 things you DO NOT want to do: 

#1. DO NOT choose an outsourced accounting department based purely on cost

You get what you pay for. It’s more true with outsourced accounting services than with nearly any financial management or reporting. While most firms will compete with one another to offer you their accounting services for the lowest price, this may be a red flag that you’re walking into a partnership that you’ll regret a few months down the road. 

Instead, outsource our accounting responsibilities and needs to the firm that can actually manage what you need. Look at cost as a part of the bigger picture. Cost alone is not an accurate view of how much you’re going to save (or make) with a given accounting team. 

#2. DO NOT outsource accounting to professionals who are not experts in your accounting software

Avoid accounting service providers who are not experts in your given accounting software. While it may cut costs for you to hire non-experts, it will cost you an arm and a leg in a few months when they aren’t able to manage your books or deliver spot-on reports.

Instead, ask your accounting professionals if they’re experts in your accounting software. It’s a simple “yes” or “no” question that will give you insight into whether or not you should hire them. 

#3. DO NOT hire an outsourced accounting team who doesn’t know your industry

When you outsource your accounting to a professional or team, you’re asking them to take responsibility for your financial standings. This is a big deal. A professional or team that’s never managed financials in your industry or niche may have a hard time getting you what you need. Also, the nuances (and nuisances) in each industry can vary. 

Instead, ask each accounting agency, firm, professional you’re interviewing if they’ve done work in your given industry (or at least an adjacent industry).

I am so happy I found Kendra and her bookkeeping and CPA services! They have been so efficient, reliable, friendly and accessible. I was previously with another company for 30 years and do not regret making this change.

Furever Bookkeeping has been our financial savior. Our small business went through several bookkeepers before hiring Furever Bookkeeping. Furever Bookkeeping has been responsive, adaptable, and provided excellent communication throughout the pandemic. The level of customer service we have experienced is unmatched for a small business such as ours.

-Orman M.



Kendra brought years of my business’s financials current and balanced my books quickly. She and the whole furever bookkeeping squad know what they’re doing. Helped my business exponentially.

-Charlie U.



Kendra served as our law firm’s outside, independent bookkeeper. When she started working for us she inherited financial books that were a complete mess. She was able to straighten them out and, since then, has kept our books accurately and complete. I can ask her at anytime where we stand financially and she can tell me instantly. She is very personable and a delight to work with. During her tenure working with us, even though she was an independent contractor, she became our firm’s CFO. I do not hesitate to recommend her.

-Fred P.



The entire Furever Bookkeeping team helped my Consulting Firm and me streamline our Accounting system using technology for efficiency sake. This saved us a ton. Kendra and her team are gems.

-Patricia F.



Kendra has been instrumental for our business. If you are looking for an accounting team that is professional, timely, and great at communicating call Furever Bookkeeping. They were a life saver for my company!

-Renee D.



Kendra’s team is top notch and reconciled back years under budget. Thanks to the entire team. We continue to grow as a direct result of her knowledge and strategy.
